Back once again with the latest information relevant to dermatology, Advanced Dermatology for Primary Care is designed for the non-dermatologist and will focus on practical office dermatology. Primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other medical professionals with an interest in dermatology are encouraged to attend. Faculty will present a wide spectrum of common dermatological problems and emphasize effective management.
